MORGANTOWN PERSPECTIVES Janet and Dana Talk MMS Past and Present

MMS Endodontics has a storied history in Morgantown. In the ‘90s, the practice was known as Morgantown Endodontics, having been established by one Dr. Skidmore. Then, in 2004, Dr. Minchau took over. Since then, there has been a lot of growth—and there are two women who have seen it all

Meet Janet, our office manager at the Morgantown location!

I’ve been with the practice since 1993 and I got my start with Dr. Skidmore. When Dr. Minchau bought the office in 2004, I decided to stay on, and all I can say is that it was a great decision! Since 2004, there has been a steady progression of change. I’ve seen MMS grow from one location to three. I’ve seen new doctors and staff come aboard. Seeing this kind of growth is exciting; now we’re serving three great communities. From the very beginning, I’ve worked at the front desk in one capacity or another. My role has expanded over the years, but when patients come in, there’s a good chance they’ll see me right up front. And speaking of patients, we have a lot more than even just a few years ago. It’s remarkable to see so many people from around Morgantown getting the dental care they need! One of my favorite parts of working at MMS is the patient experience. Everyone who works here is just so involved. We work closely to make the whole experience as pleasant as possible. The doctors are fun to work with, the staff is great, and most importantly, everyone truly cares about one another. Another thing I love to see is that special moment when patients come out at the end of their appointment after having a root canal. They always say the same thing:“That wasn’t bad at all!”

Meet Dana, our chairside dental assistant at the Morgantown location!

Like Janet, I’ve been here since before Dr. Minchau bought the practice from Dr. Skidmore in 2004. In fact, I started in 1999! As the chairside dental assistant, I’m right beside the docs as they work with patients. I got my start after I received a call from a friend. She was a dental hygienist and told me about a dental assisting job. I was raising two small kids at the time, and it sounded like a great opportunity. I took it and have been here ever since! If there is one thing that hasn’t changed over the years, it’s the feeling of family. My co-workers are wonderful people and every day they make it a joy to come into work. We really are a family here! That feeling extends to the patients, as well. It goes without saying that most people don’t look forward to coming in for their appointment. In their mind, a root canal is just about the worst thing they can imagine. At MMS, we make it our goal to change that. The practice is all about making every patient feel as comfortable and at ease as possible. When you’re at ease, everything is that much better.

I too am excited to see what’s next. With four doctors, multiple locations, and so many patients, anything is possible! –Dana

Like so much in dentistry, root canals have changed a lot over the years. Just like our office, the treatments have changed and everything is just getting better. I’m excited to see what’s next! –Janet
